Dear School District of Upper Dublin Community,
Water quality has garnered a great deal of attention, and we believe it is imperative to communicate the steps we are taking as a District in the best interests of our students and staff. The steps below summarize actions being taken by the School District of Upper Dublin based upon information about best practices related to PFAS levels in water.
- Water testing will occur in all schools for contaminants.
- Water fountains in each building will have carbon filters. Students and staff will be directed to use these water fountains.
- Each building will have an emergency supply of bottled water.
- We will continue to encourage students and staff to bring bottled water to school.
Additionally, the District has and will maintain communication with water providers to stay abreast of continuing quality issues. We will continue to communicate information as we learn about it, and share updates via District website and emails as well as social media outlets.
Steven M. Yanni, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
